The unnamed narrator recalls a summer spent on an idyllic island off the coast of Naples in the 1950's, when he was just sixteen. There he spends his days with Nicola, a local fisherman, who shares his love of the sea and his memories of war with the boy. There too he falls in love with Caia, a Jewish girl who had been saved by Italian soldiers from the Nazis, who killed the rest of her Yugoslav family. Outraged by what he's learned of war and Italy's complicity with the Nazis, and inspired by his newfound manhood, his love for Caia, and his ardent patriotism, he commits a flamboyant, cataclysmic act of destruction.
